Mission: Miata Aero

This is a website dedicated to Miata aerodynamics and endurance racing. The name is a pun on Occam’s Razor, which I’ll paraphrase as “if you have many competing theories, choose the simplest.” For driving enjoyment, economy, and car racing, Miatas are the simplest solution. Thirty years after its introduction, this is still true.

There’s great content on Miata aerodynamics all over the net, but it’s not easy to find. And so part of the mission is to collate existing Miata aero content, as well as provide new data to fill existing knowledge gaps (roofline shape, for example).

Most of this website’s content is focused on the real-world testing I did at Watkins Glen. There’s a lot of information here, and probably the best place to start is the Results menu. In addition, I go into a bit of aerodynamic theory, DIY fabrication, and other crap in the blog.

This is an intellectual pursuit, not a business venture. I don’t sell anything. If you feel this information is helpful and you want to kick some back, I take donations.
